Okyeso Nyame Group
In this Group: Mercy, Sarah, Agartha, Yaa, Sarah
Mercy is 38 years old. She is a married woman with three boys. All her children are in school. She is a baker who has used flour for her production for eight years now. She bakes bread and retails it to her customers. She supplies them by herself in the market center, and people also take bulk delivery bread from her. Her only problem now has to do with inadequate funds to buy raw materials as prices are going up. She requests loan support to remain in business. With the loan, she believes she can provide for her family and, most especially, for her children's education.


She is the leader of a trust bank group called "Okyeso Nyame," which means "God of Abundance." She is the one sitting in front in the group photograph. Most of the members of this group are petty traders, food vendors and/or farmers. In this group, members guarantee for one another as social collateral to access the loan and provide peer pressure to repay the loan.

Additional Information

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
